The 2017 Legislative session is underway and their is already some progress to passing a real, longterm funding plan to fix South Carolina’s roads.
SCFOR’s Bill Ross didn’t mince words in his interview with WIS:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) –A new plan to fix South Carolina’s crumbling roads would pump new state dollars into road repairs. The plan would create hundreds of millions of dollars, but some of that would come from raising the state’s gas tax.
The state’s crumbling roads are being blamed for some of the near-thousand highway fatalities last year. So, lawmakers say a new bill is part of a solution.
“Our roads are just in horrible condition all across the state.” Bill Ross from the SC Alliance to Fix Our Roads said. “Congestion is horrible. Safety is horrible.”
Your lawmakers need to continue to hear from you. Tell them today to fix our roads.
